Bzip compresses files using the Burrows-Wheeler-Fenwick block-sorting text compression algorithm.the program documentation
The ideas embodied in bzip are due to (at least) the following people: Michael Burrows and David Wheeler (for the block sorting transformation), Peter Fenwick (for the structured coding model, and many refinements), and Alistair Moffat, Radford Neal and Ian Witten (for the arithmetic coder).
The compressor is featured in the BWT comparison.
